After being persuaded by heavily financed anti campaigns from the very 2 parties who gain from FPTP.

I think I agree with the implication that there should really be a cap on campaign spending.

Both sides in a referendum should have the same spending.

PR sounds fair until the reality hits home. Imagine a hung parliament on one side you have a coalition of Labour / / Lib Dems SNP / Greens and on the other side you have Tories, Ulster Unionists and the Brexit party. In addition to that you have a few independents e.g. Monster Raving Loony Party and some extreme left and right wing MPs.

In order to form a government Labour has agreed to Indyref2 with the SNP and banned nuclear power and coal with the Greens. Meanwhile the Tories are selling their soul to the DUP and the Brexit party.

With neither side able to form a government they both go after the independents and try and make deals even with the nasty parties.

This happens in Israel where the small extreme religious groups seems to hold a large amount of power.

PR gives everybody a say unfortunately you may not like what some of the more extreme ones have to say.

Our current system maybe flawed but at least it keeps out the real nasty parties

Debatable

I recognise the flaws of PR, and certainly smaller parties having unduly large influence is the biggest one of those, but I still think itís infinitely preferable to our current system where a party get a mandate to do whatever they want because 40% of the country voted for them.

If more compromise is required in parliament as a result, I donít see that as a bad thing.

And you can bet your bottom dollar the "don't knows" who voted in the referendum voted leave!

BTW, what have you seen to make you one of the positive 7% (and diminishing)?

My point is that 52% don't see a negative. Read the figures you posted again. Only 37% say its negative. So the 7% is the red herring.
Add the first three up.

Blame apathy for the results, not the system.
If people can't be Naffed to vote then you get the result from the people who can be Naffed. Not hard to vote even by post.

Not hard to carry out electoral fraud by postal votes as we have seen in certain Labour held constituencies.

The justice secretary admits there were only 3 cases of electoral fraud in the December 2019 election.

Not in labour held constituences either.

The Electoral Commission warned young people, people from ethnic minorities, women and the elderly were most likely to be penalised by the new legislation.

Non-communists widely regard the Electoral Commission report as a whitewash. Postal Vote electoral fraud is widespread in certain communities.

The people on the electoral commission have proven themselves terrible in my view.

Oh dear try again.

65% are either a bit dissatisfied or a lot dissatisfied.

How about fraud in Tower Hamlets? Rather more than 3 cases there.
